  • [formerly dead link] Box Seats, 500 East Washington St, +1 508-695-0660. Open daily at 11:30AM. A tidy sports-themed establishment that doesn't pull any punches, for better or for worse.

  • Dragon Garden, 35 N Washington St, +1 508 695-8000. Regarded to be one of the best Chinese restaurants in the area. Dragon Garden has more of an American Chinese style, but its authenticity doesn't harm its food quality, or quantity, as they will always serve you a large enough portion. Don't let the bright pink interior turn you off, great food, a full bar and the option for takeout make this place worth at least a few trips.
  • Rico's Submarine Shop, 460 E Washington St, +1 508 695-1296. Rico's Submarine Shop is a convenient place to get a sub or pizza right off of Route 1. A very casual sort of restaurant, but the food is a must-have if you're in the area.
  • Bistro 45, 45 N Washington St, +1 508 699-4677. A small and cheap restaurant, but with great food. Bistro 45 is deceiving, because what looks like a normal small restaurant is actually a great breakfast place to get interesting twists on regular breakfast foods. Examples include English muffins filled with mozzarella cheese, tomato and egg. The restaurant is also noted for its timely service and clean atmosphere.
